Coconut Sevai | Thengai Sevai | Easy Idiyappam Recipes

Coconut Sevai or Thengai Sevai is a simple, delicious South Indian breakfast item that is packed with flavor.  It does not have too many ingredients and is quite easy to prepare.   The preparation of this rice noodle recipe is quite similar to how we make coconut rice.  This makes for a good lunch box recipe too.

I have used instant sevai available in the market and cooked as per instructions on the packet.  You can make this coconut sevai recipe with fresh sevai or even with idiyappam.  There are so many healthy variations that can be made with sevai like lemon sevai, vegetable sevai, curd sevai, tamarind sevai, masala sevai that are all equally delicious.

How To Prepare Coconut Idiyappam Recipe:
